For years I’ve hated my cell phone. It always seemed to ring at the most inopportune times: while it’s buried in my purse on the backseat of my car, while it’s finally my turn at the checkout, when I’m in the middle of a hard conversation.
Then I realized my lame, preloaded ringtone was a huge factor.
I needed something that would make me and others laugh. Sic ‘Em on a Chicken – I found a song that not only makes me laugh, it’s about a dog named Pete. I have a bichon named Pete. I figured this was a sign from God. So, I purchased the song and now whenever my phone rings I chuckle before I say “hello.”
But ringtones are for more than just phone calls.
Every morning I get an alarm reminding me to call my 92-year-old mom. She came to this country from Germany to marry my dad and she still has a thick German accent. So, I purchased a German beer-garden song and that’s my favorite alarm.
